Although fall may be the furthest thing from your mind, because the temperatures are not signaling the season coming anytime soon, now, is actually the perfect time to start planning your fall wardrobe.  Taking advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that started today, is a great way to pick up sale pieces that are perfect to wear now, or that will easily transition into fall and beyond.

L1002311L1002305L1002312L1002317L1002318To showcase a few items I picked up during the early access period of  the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, for this look, I wore my Topshop Patchwork Oversized Open Cardigan, and my Leith High Neck Tank.  I paired these pieces from the sale with my Boston Proper Flare Jeans, my Ann Taylor perforated booties, and my Tory Burch “Robinson” Crossbody Wallet.  I love this cardigan, because it is perfect to wear thrown over the shoulder, and it will be great to wear in the fall with everything from jeans and pants to skirts and dresses.  The tank is ideal to pair with a cardigan sweater or a blazer, and can be worn dressed or casual.  If you’re feeling it’s a little early to be thinking about fall clothes, in today’s “Style Guide,” I’m sharing a few tips for prepping your fall wardrobe, that may shed some light on why now is the perfect time to pick up a few fall pieces.

Style Guide:  Tips For Prepping Your Fall Wardrobe

Take Inventory & Get Organized – This time of year is a great time to begin taking inventory of your closet, picking items that will transition into fall, and making note of pieces that you might need to compliment fall items you already own.

Shop Sales – Many sales this time of year like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on now, are somewhat pre-fall sales, and feature brand new arrivals at great sale prices.

Preview Trends – By shopping sales like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you not only can pick up items that will expand your wardrobe at sale prices, but you also get a preview of future styles to help you stay on trend for the coming season.

Plan Looks – As you purchase fall sale pieces, it’s a great idea to start planning your looks by laying out outfits, and hanging items together that work well together.  This will allow you to easily access these styles with the season arrives.
